Improved Dictionary Handling
Dictionaries make it easy and convenient to manage complex data in HALCON. For example, different data types such as images, ROIs and parameter settings can be bundled in a single dictionary. This allows programs to be structured in a logical way, for example when passing many parameters to a procedure.
HALCON 21.11 includes several improvements that make the handling of dictionaries even easier and faster. For example, dictionaries can now be initialized with a single operator call, and the syntax for adding and retrieving elements has been simplified. In addition, the auto-completion now also suggests the keys contained in the dictionary, which further speeds up and simplifies working with dictionaries.
Future-Proof Interface for Shape Matching
With Generic Shape Matching, HALCON offers user-friendly access to MVTec's industry-proven shape matching technologies. Thanks to the significant reduction in the number of required operators, users can implement solutions more easily and quickly.
With HALCON 21.11, existing functionalities are enhanced based on customer feedback to further increase usability. For example, the clutter feature has been integrated, handle inspection has been optimized, and additional parameters have been integrated and included in the automatic parameter estimation.
